Australian entertainer Rolf Harris defiantly returned to the spotlight on Saturday (18May13) for his first show since his arrest in March (13). The veteran star was interviewed by cops in London in November (12) and later formally arrested on 28 March (13) as part of Operation Yewtree, a police probe launched following claims late TV host Jimmy Savile molested hundreds of underage children during his long-running career. Harris, who is currently on bail, has kept a low profile since news of his arrest broke in April (13), but he stepped back onstage at the Bristol Hippodrome in England over the weekend. More than 1,800 fans came out in support of the 83 year old, who performed his classic songs Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport and Two Little Boys. The performance comes after bosses at Britain's Channel 5 network decided to axe repeats of his TV show Rolf's Animal Clinic.
